A dialed in Tecumseh is a good engine, imo. Trouble is, I've never gotten one dialed in correctly before.
They are a tough machine, with a reasonable price tag, in my area. One shortcoming is the odd (narrow) size of their 3 point hitch. Smaller than Cat 0, making implement choices brand specific.

what exactly does "dialed in" mean, is that just a matter of adjusting the mixtures, thats pretty easy. he also has a 16/6 suburban, that actually has a OHV engine. i didnt even realize that the OHV technology was used in small engines. i believe that tractor was built in the late 70's. they also had suburbans with onan twins, that has to be a beast.

Seems the carb body has an invisible crack in the casting that was allowing it to suck air thru the breather hole. Wasn't until I started really poking and prodding at it that it became visible. Purple PVC primer finally showed it to me. Live and learn, I guess

I have an evil LME carb as well,and I swear it's sucking air through a crack, as it warms up, and the crack
expands. Id sure like to test my theory.

Mine was in the top of the bowl area, between the needle valve and where the main jet goes up in.
